1) …to preserve the sight of those who serve us all selflessly…
2) …to strengthen referral relationships with general practice veterinarians…
3) …to gather data relative to work performance for future work recommendations…
4) …to benefit those who rely on Service Animals; individuals and society…
Special thanks to supporting
Service Animal organizations who have chosen to endorse the ACVO National
Service Dog Eye Exam Day. Their members are invited to participate
and benefit from the complimentary eye examination being provided by one of our over 250 participating
boarded veterinary ophthalmologists in the USA, Canada and Puerto Rico. Please support
these organizations and help us thank them for their participation.
We would also like to extend a warm thank
you to all the Primary Care veterinarians who have referred their Service
Animal clients to participate. The health of animals is greatly improved
when physicians work together. An animal’s primary care veterinarian
and a board certified veterinary ophthalmologist make a great health care team…
Due to referrals from supporters and general practice veterinarians, over 15,000 Service Animals have received free screening eye exams over the past five years. Ophthalmologists generously donated over $300,000 in services to this community. Thank you all for your support!
If you would like to to endorse the upcoming May event
and invite your certified Service Animals to participate, please contact
the ACVO office.
